REQUIRED HOMEWORK  2016-2017   Please join our Class Dojo! I post spelling words (for homework) on Class Dojo each week!

There is Reading and Spelling homework every Monday and Tuesday night each week. This is required work.  Missing work will result in lost privileges. Please complete all homework on notebook paper in pencil.  The homework MUST be in the student’s handwriting. It is okay for parents to help with what to write, but the student must actually do the writing.  Spelling word lists for the upcoming week will be sent home in your child’s folder every Friday.  (So be careful to save it and not throw it out. It is all in the same folder.) If your child wishes to finish their homework early over the weekend send all of it on in Monday morning!  If school is officially out on a Monday or Tuesday there will be no homework due for that day.  If your child is absent, however, then homework is still due the day they return back to school.  Reading books (and school planners) will be sent home every night and must be returned back to school each day. If your child loses a spelling list, they will also have the words written in their school planners each week.  Along with this written homework, please help your child study spelling words for the test each Friday. If there is a short week, the test will be given on Thursday. Students who turn in quality homework on time will be rewarded with a Class Dojo point which goes toward earning a treasure box visit.  Be sure to look at your child’s work and sign their planner EVERY Friday so that I know you are kept up with what is going on in the classroom and how your child is progressing. Please also have your child read our assigned reading story out-loud to you for 15 minutes Wednesday and Thursday nights….that is why there is no other homework assigned for these nights. The benefits to your child’s reading fluency from this are tremendous!

 Monday Night

1.     Use each of the 12 spelling words in a sentence. (The first 12 words are the regular spelling words. The last 6 are bonus words. Bonus words are awarded an extra point on the spelling test if written correctly). Underline spelling words and use capitals letters where needed and use correct ending punctuation.  Please number each sentence and skip lines between sentences to help with neatness. Please encourage neatness as this is included in the grading.  Always put the title (capitalized correctly) of the week’s reading story (this is at the bottom of the spelling word list) along with your name at the top of the notebook paper (This is for practice capitalizing titles correctly).  Beginning in January, use each of the 12 spelling words in a spelling "story" instead of in sentences. Make up a title at the top of the paper for your story and capitalize the title correctly. The story should all be about a common theme and not just merely sentences thrown together.

2.      Read the assigned week’s reading story out loud to an adult and then answer ALL of the questions on the page immediately following the end of the reading the story. The assignments on this page will vary week to week, but are short assignments. With practice, will eventually only take about 15 minutes to complete. Be sure to Always put the title (capitalized correctly) of the week’s reading story along with your name at the top of the notebook paper.     

Tuesday Night

1.     Have your child choose one of the following to do: Write the 12 spelling words in pyramids, or write the words in abc order.

2.     Read the assigned week’s reading story out loud to an adult and then do the assignments on the second page following the end of the week’s reading story. The assignments on this page will vary week to week, but are SUPER short assignments. With practice, will eventually only take about 15 minutes to complete. Be sure to always put the title (capitalized correctly) of the week’s reading story along with your name at the top of the notebook paper (which again is the purpose for this-the practice of writing a title correctly capitalized).  Also, on this same page write a paragraph telling the main idea of the story and give 3 important details. (Ex. _______ is the main idea from title of story.  One detail from the story is ______. Another detail is ______. A third detail from the story is _________.  These are some details and is the main idea from (Title of story).

Wednesday and Thursday Nights

Read the reading story out-loud to an adult, study math addition facts, sight words and the week’s spelling   words.
